Do you want to join the CAMRIA team as a PhD student?

New position connected to CAMRIA is available. If you are interested in starting the PhD program and becoming a part of the project “Risk communication and -perception of AMR in the public and among healthcare workers – knowledge needed to develop new policies and interventions”, you can see the job announcement (in Norwegian).

The position is hosted by the Department of Information Science and Media Studies, University of Bergen and and is planned for a 4-years period. In your work as a PhD student, together with the colleagues you would look into how use of antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance is presented in the Norwegian media, if and how it has changed over time and what the public response to the problem is. The particular focus of the project is to analyse how dissemination of the research on (mis-)use of antibiotics in the media is interpreted, discussed and re-communicated in social media. The importance of this research question is highlighted by often quick-spreading misconceptions and/or unconfirmed news in social media, potentially causing uncertainty, scepticism and mistrust among citizens.

The PhD candidate’s task will be to examine the communication of topics connected to antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance in selected news/social media, and to look into how the audience perceives risk and threats in this communication.

The application deadline is March 3, 2023.
